Friday nights

Coming in 2021

All these concerts are planned but we give no guarantees that all or any of them will happen.

 

Please take note of these guidelines from the Legion Club :-

With the easing of restrictions starting from Monday 19th July please see below our practices while we all adjust. Our staff & our customers are our main priority & we are very much aware that the easing of restrictions is for some very welcome but leaves others concerned – we want anyone who visits us to be at ease & so we ask that the following are taken on board & followed:
HEALTH
If anyone planning to visit has any symptoms that could be attributed to Covid 19 they should not enter the premises.
HANDS
Please continue to use the hand sanitisers provided on entry & maintain good hand hygiene.
FACEMASKS
Although no longer mandatory we will have notices asking customers to continue to wear a mask while at the bar being served.
SOCIAL DISTANCING
We ask everyone to be mindful & respectful of the personal space of other customers and staff – we have plenty of room! There will be no limits (other than usual fire regulations!) on gatherings inside or outside.
TRACK AND TRACE
The QR code will be displayed for those that wish to check in - if you do not have the app & wish to leave your contact details please ask the bar staff to pass them to the Club Secretary to be kept on file.
BAR SERVICE
Table service has been removed & orders can be placed at the bar & so we will return to using “SERVICE POINTS” - these points are the ONLY area to be used when approaching the bar
There will be four points (two on either side). Please avoid queuing & wait until the service point is clear before approaching. Once you have paid for & received your drink please then move away from the bar area.
Where possible it would be appreciated if contactless payment could be used but cash is of course accepted.
The trays for used glasses/cups etc will remain & we ask customers to continue the practice of bringing empties back.
The screens across the bar will remain in place indefinitely.
SANITISING
The cleaning & sanitising practices we have in place will remain.


We are back in Blandford Legion for the following concerts.

Unless otherwise stated, concerts will start at 8pm (doors 7.45) Legion open from 7pm.

Supporting Geoff and Rob, we have the stunning musical duo, Helen Gentile (Threepenny Piece) and Lewis Wood (Granny's Attic) with a delightful mix of music.

10th Dec - Jez Lowe & Bad Pennies Winter Tour

**at 8pm at Blandford's Royal British Legion** 

"ICE-ELATION DAY!"

 

Jez Lowe and his Bad Pennies are making their way south again, bringing us their Winter Tour 'Ice-Elation Day'.

Sadly Benny Graham is not well enough to tour so will not be accompanying them now, but we are assured of a great night's music from Jez and the Pennies.

Jez Lowe’s annual Christmas tour has become quite a tradition in recent years, striking out from his native North East England to entertain audiences across the whole of the UK. Award winning songwriter Jez Lowe will be joined by his intrepid touring band so expect a musical feast of guitar, cittern, fretless bass, fiddle, melodeon, piano, whistles and their trademark harmony vocals!

Once again we invite you to share the music, merriment and mirth of Christmas in the North-East. Part folk concert, part music-hall revue. Sing along, laugh along, and drive the cold winter away.
